On May 23, Rainbow Village will host their 16th Annual Golf Classic at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth. Golfers from all over the city will gather to play while raising funds to offer hope and promise to homeless families with children in North Metro Atlanta.

Situated on 1,200 acres of breathtaking countryside within the gated community of Sugarloaf Country Club, TPC Sugarloaf offers magnificent golf designed by Greg Norman. The course features corridors of undulating Bermuda fairways thread through stately stands of towering oak, pine and maple trees, with numerous streams, lakes and hills adding to the course”s spectacular beauty and strategic diversity.

The format will be a four-player team scramble. Teams will be accepted by entry form or made up from individual entries based upon handicaps. With a shotgun start at noon, golfers will have four and a half hours to enjoy the beauty and challenge of TPC Sugarloaf.

Throughout the day, golfers will be able to compete in great contests and raffles, which will include the opportunity to win a Scotland Golf Vacation and Four Weekly Ground Tickets to the 2011 PGA Championship!

At the end of the day, golfers will enjoy fun and fellowship over a fantastic dinner. For $25 non-golfers are welcome to come join us for dinner. The awards ceremony is always full of laughter as everyone celebrates the day”s successes and competes to win great raffle prizes!

The cost for individual players is $225 and $800 for teams of four. Registration begins at 10 a.m. Registration fee includes complimentary bag handling & club drop, range balls, green fees, cart, lunch, dinner, non-alcoholic beverages, on-course contests, a golf gift pack, and more.

About Rainbow Village
Rainbow Village is a transitional housing community for homeless families with children. Rainbow Village offers a true “village” model where homeless families can find refuge, recover, and learn to rebuild their lives with the support of a community-based family surrounding them. The goal is to break the cycles of homelessness, poverty and domestic violence by teaching adults and children to believe in themselves again, to chart a new course, and to work a plan that enables them to once again be self-sufficient.

Since 1991, over 200 families with more than 500 children have successfully completed our program. We encourage you to learn more about our work and how you can get involved at www.RainbowVillage.org.
